I am very interested in the process of factory press glass. Over the past few years I have been researching the process slowly, I have acquired a hand press machine, tools, and moulds. The press I have, known as Beatrix, is approximately 100 years olds. Though this history of glassmaking I hope to explore innovative ways to create small sculptures and installations.
